Firstly, thank you for all of your help the last few days. I'm building and have no chook experience - I hope I can be a question answerer in the future. I want to establish what system I will use for the chicks to get from the coop to the run. The coop is around 80' from the house and will be a 8x8 walk-in with 16 chookies. I have plenty of space and will be building a decent sized enclosed run. I looked at the automatic door opener kits - mine would need to be solar or battery powered. I cant figure out if I really need that system ($) I'm thinking that each morning and evening I would need to either enter the run to open the door, enter the coop to open the door, or rig some sort of pulley to open and shut the chicken door from outside of the coop, or have an auto door. I want to try to get as much as possible right at the start but know I will need to adjust stuff over time. Any one have an opinion? Thanks!
